UHU ReNATURE, including UHU stic and UHU twist & glue, is our line of adhesive products designed to accommodate sustainability transversally, from formulations to packaging.
Since 2014, the UHU ReNATURE range has received numerous international awards for our commitment towards sustainability, and in 2019 for the second year running, UHU ReNATURE twist & glue received the Green Brands award for sustainable brands, initiatives and companies. In 2019, we continued working on UHU ReNATURE twist & glue, today’s first glue in a container made of 88% bio-plastic coming from materials of natural origin and 90% recycled cardboard packaging.
Furthermore, 70% of the solvent-free formulation consists of natural ingredients (including water) compared to a traditional container of UHU ReNATURE twist & glue: this means a 46% reduction in CO2 emissions and a 45% reduction in the fossil fuels used for manufacturing.
UHU ReNATURE twist & glue has also been awarded the Nordic Swan Ecolabel, one of the most authoritative sustainability endorsements in Nordic countries. Its goal is to reduce the environmental impact of products, from manufacturing through to consumption, to help consumers choose more sustainable alternatives. In order to put this recognition into context, it must be considered that UHU ReNATURE twist & glue is the only adhesive product in the stationery category to have received this endorsement.
